McMinnville officials may consider establishing a succession plan for the city’s Finance Department, meaning a new position of assistant director would be created.The recommendation came from Alderman Ken Smith, who says every department in the city either has a succession plan — a qualified employee ready to step up into a management position if the spot is suddenly vacated — or is in the process of establishing one.“The administrative department does not,” said Smith. “If we have assistants for all other departments. We need to have, I feel like, an assistant city recorder/ finance director.”Shirley Durham is the city’s current finance director and its city recorder/ treasurer.
